BOISEDEV FIRST MEMBER PREVIEW STORY

  • Eagle View Landing

Presented by TOK

The Meridian Planning & Zoning Commission will hold a hearing Thursday on a high-profile project at the corner of Eagle Rd. and I-84.

As BoiseDev previously reported, the 52-acre site will host a number of projects, including a new headquarters building for Idaho Central Credit Union, a hotel, “upscale retail,” restaurants, medical office and future Pivot by Kristin Armstrong gym.

The commission will vote on a preliminary plat for the site. The application changed slightly. Developer Ball Ventures Ahlquist moved the “golf entertainment venue” closer to I-84, displacing additional office buildings. The space formerly occupied by the Topgolf-style venue on the SE corner of the property would again host multi-family residential as initially planned, according to the application.

The project is known by several names – including, formally, Rackham Subdivision. BVA markets the project under the name Eagle View Landing, formerly known as Eagle View Plaza. Planning documents with the City of Meridian refer to it as ICCU Plaza.

Approval process ahead

BVA initially hoped to break ground on the project this spring. It still needs approval from the City of Meridian for the preliminary plat. It will also need a conditional use permit for the future apartment project. Additionally, Meridian will need to approve modification of the current development agreement for the land. Meridian annexed the site in 1995 and targeted it for a large retail-type development that never materialized.

Meridian Planning and Zoning will hear the preliminary plat application at 6pm on Thursday June 20th at Meridian City Hall.

The Farmstead, an agro-tourism business that held a festival on the property each fall, moved to a new site ten miles south in Kuna where it will hold its event this year.
